LOST IN THE NOISE

January 19 — EASE MY REVOLUTIONARY MIND, Tom Morello (2013)

img_1608Some say Woody Guthrie was the original punk rocker. No wonder artists like Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine idolize him. A few years back, several artists gave a concert at the Kennedy Center to celebrate Woody’s 100th birthday. Morello sang an anthem of Woody’s previously unpublished lyrics — but slightly modified to take a swipe at Fox News. There’s a lot more of Woody’s work out there, as we learned when his archives were made public in 1996. The most prolific songwriter of our time, Woody had enough material to protest the likes of Donald Trump for however long he’s in office.
